After making a choice of a B&B over the internet in the quaint town of Jim Thorpe, we were more than extraordinarily pleased with The Harry Packer Mansion. Attention to detail in making their guests comfortable & special was important to Pat and Bob, the hosts. They have made their home, a stunning mansion, into an experience back in time; feeling as though you were a king/queen in their beautiful rooms. High ceilings, gorgeous furnishings and 'things to see' in each 'nook and cranny' was fun and interesting. I would highly recommend this experience, one you will not soon forget!! Pat was very helpful in assisting us in suggestions for hiking trails, biking experiences and restaurants as well as some local history of the mansion and the town. We had a wonderful 2 days in Jim Thorpe.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built as a wedding present in 1874, the Harry Packer Mansion now serves as a luxury inn within the Mauch Chunk Historic district of Jim Thorpe, PA, just 1 1/2 hours from Philadelphia and NYC.The Mansion was used by Disney as a model for the Haunted Mansion so it is only fitting that it is known for its award-winning Murder Mystery Weekends. Voted the best Murder Mystery weekend by the Book of Lists and recently the best on the East Coast by NPR. Come for the murder weekend, visit during the week for a quieter experience, stop by and enjoy a glass of wine on the veranda or take a tour through the mansion. ... more less
